There are many opportunities to volunteer at EarthSeeds. Provide expertise in one of our learning areas, help us network with other like minded organizations, work with a local school, or contribute your unique skills in a variety of ways.
Global Literacy for Kids in a Changing World
In a world that is increasingly interconnected, EarthSeeds is at the forefront of the new global literacy movement that is helping young people learn to be global citizens of the future. Conservation, wildlife, peace, cultural understanding, water, energy and many other global issues will increasingly impact our world. EarthSeeds provides planetary curriculum, earth images and dialogue to help young people understand these issues and work together to create a better world.
Be an EarthSeeds Ambassador
Volunteer as an EarthSeeds Ambassador and help us reach out locally and internationally! Our inflatable globes, postcards and website are fun tools to help you engage people in dialogue about our planet. Visit a local school, work a table at a community fair, partner with a local group, make new contacts over the internet, or help spread the word when you travel around the world.
We'll send you our Ambassador Kit which includes Earth postcards and materials which make it fun to spread the seeds of global learning and friendship! Help us connect locally and around the world to make a difference. [more]
Help EarthSeeds Reach Out to the Rest of the World
One of the trends in communications is using the internet to connect through new technologies that allow anyone to build a web page, talk by internet phone, and share photos and video. We think these technologies represent great opportunities for learning about the world and building international friendships without borders.
We need volunteers who can help us make connections locally and internationally with events, youth programs, fundraising, communications and more. Contact us for more information.
Volunteers with Special Skills Urgently Needed
As we prepare to launch our new network, we need volunteers who can assist with office work as well as more specialized areas such as:
- Global Youth Voice: Volunteer with a local school or help us connect with schools around the world. See our Global Youth Voice page for more information.
